Since a week or so, FireFox hasnt been able to open pdf's anymore in the browser. The page goes blank, nothing happens. Im still able to right click a pdf and do a Save-as action though. Ive read several other topics, and tried some things like changing preferences on which program should open the pdf, or how it should be opened (or rather saved as). None of them worked.

One solution I havent tried, which might work, but should be my last resort, would be to uninstall and re-install FF. Hope to see if someone has a tip on thow to change this.

Note: not so long ago I updated Adobe to the latest version (v2015), which is actually named 'Adobe Acrobat Reader DC' now.

Lastest FF 38 now allows me to easily disable FP protected mode which seems to cure my quite frequent FP crashes. The question I have is just how vulnerable will I be if the protected mode is disabled? I've been using FF with FP disabled for quite a while now with little inconvenience since almost everybody is using HTML. I would appreciate anyone's comments. Thanks

I've specifically set my banks website listed as an option to not save the password.

This morning when signing into my bank the password field was populated and I discovered a saved password for that website within options.

This is unacceptable.

I just upgraded to Firefox 38 on Ubuntu 14.04/64 bit. Prior to the upgrade, all webpages displayed perfectly normally. Now on v 38, the default zoom is very large. I have to ctl-minus each and every webpage I visit to get the zoom back down to a normal size.. In fact, the entire user interface of 38 is too big.. icons on the bookmark toolbar are far bigger than they were on 37.0.2.. What changed between 37.0.2 and 38??????

Dave

Further update: Tried upgrading from 37.02 to 38 on a Windows 10 tech preview system and do not get the screwed up default zoom...

Why is v38.0 so prone to crashing, and why was it apparently rushed out of beta too early?

Since upgrading from v37.0.2 this morning (using the full installer, not the stub installer), v38.0 has crashed repeatedly -- probably 7-8 times, sometimes in rapid succession. Seems that it might be an unhappy coincidence with yesterday's release of Flash v17.0.0.188, or that some incompatibility in handling Flash activity is producing the application's unexpected terminations.
